Creating art is my key to happiness, my fountain of youth, my magic kingdom. For me, art is an ever evolving, lifelong process. It is rare that I go even a day without creating, as it is not just what I do, but it is who I am. I love new techniques, ideas and inspiration. When I paint, I feel my soul humming and it provides me with a sense of completeness. I want my work to be peaceful, but also to have an emotional impact. Sometimes my vision wants a bold, bright abstract, while other times it prefers a soft piece of realism. I try not to question it, as I know it is all a part of me and where I am heading creatively.
